Hostelworld siger

If you’re looking to explore the city centre, Books Hostel is a great base. It’s located in the cultural and historical surrounds of Lapa, near Centro, two metro lines and Santos Dumont Airport as well as some of the city’s most popular bars and weekend street parties. Guests tell us the ‘laidback but upbeat’ staff create a quirky, relaxed, family-like atmosphere which is ‘very good for partying and getting to know Sta Teresa and the city centre and not just the beaches – and if you want some beach, just rent their bikes and do a trip to Copacabana and Ipenema’. We like their cheap nightly caipirinhas.

Beskrivelse af Overnatningssted

Books Hostel, a place where you are helped to write your best story in Rio.

March 2020, suddenly every left, and the building where Books exists was empty. It was a really hard time and we think it is important to share this story with you. A place so often vibrant was from day to night soul empty, with a guy with a captain hat wandering around by himself.
December, 2021, the worst seems to be behind. We have a new years eve ahead and a promise of an incredible carnival. And you, who want to come here, might be curious about what will you find when at Books?
In our heads we want everything to be like it once was. But that might not be realistic. So like a baby, we are learning how to walk, giving baby steps towards where we want to be as a hostel.
Bellow some of the things we are sure you will find while here.
i) A staff who cares about your whole stay in the city. Who have enough knowledge to help you navigate the city and write your best story.
ii) A clean and safe place, with Adriana making it as clean as possible and lockers where you can leave your luggage while getting sunburned in Leme?s beach.
iii) A lovely vegetarian breakfast, from 8h to 10h30, included in the price. Made with love by Gloria, who is still here working with us. Eggs, humus, bread and fruits to start your day in the right mood.
iv) The Books Bar. An affordable place where you can experience caipirinhas many flavours! Do not miss the happy hour.
v) Tv room with netflix and playstation 4. Hungovers have to be respected.
vi) Simple rooms but with a plug for each bed, good mattresses and pillows to help you have a good sleep, and air conditioning (9 out of 10 rooms are equipped with it).
vii) Free fast wifi with 4 networks around the building.
viii) Early check in and late check out without charge if there is availibitiy. We also have a free luggage storage in case you arrive and your room is not free.
ix) A guest kitchen decently equiped. So for backpackers who preffer to cook and save money, especially vegetarian people who do not have many options around Rio!

We are waiting for you to carry on doing what we love that involves hosting, showing the city we love and creating connections that might, or not, last a lifetime.

Its hard to describe books hostel, and the rating wont do justice. Ive been traveling all around the world, but books hostel is with out a doubt the best. The location is perfect and i never felt unsafe. The staff might be ugly but always go the ekstra mile to help, and they sure know how to have fun. The atmosphere is the most important thing, and the reason why books becomes a home and the staff/guest your family. Money cant buy happiness but it can buy you a stay at books, and thats the same!

BEST hostel in the world! Everybody is genuinely kind, wanting you to have the best experience & not just to make money off you. Feels like a big family, always a fun, friendly, social atmosphere and the breakfast is amazing. Perfect location - way less touristy than Copacabana/Ipanema. Lapa is always busy, I could easily walk home alone from nights out, never felt unsafe. The only thing I regret is not beating Felipe in beer pong but I guess thats another reason to come back then! See yoooou

Books Hostel siger

According to our guests, what makes us different is the hospitality, atmosphere, the art around the hostel, our great experience recommending people to look for programs very different from Lonely Planets and tours, and the price we charge for the service. We like to host people, and we've a very high standard with this. We want to be better and better and we're never satisfied with what we have. We're constantly seeking new investments and new arts and we're always smiling. I think everyone that works here loves what they do. From the housekeeping to me, the owner, we all know how important is to work happy in order to provide a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere to the guests. For fun, we allow people to bring alcohol and they basically drink, listen to music and talk. When guests go out they look for cheap places like jazz in the street on Wednesday nights and the Lapa Street Party. We're set between Lapa and Santa Teresa. In the former we have lots of music places, the arches and parties, especially Friday and Saturday nights. The location is also quite central, not far from the beaches and much more real. As for Santa Teresa, it's a very lovely neighbourhood. Basically I think if someone comes to Rio to experience the real Rio de Janeiro, culturally speaking, we're ready to show them.
